Wildlife Conservation Gala

Saturday, March 21 | 6 to 9:30 p.m. | Tickets on sale January 6

Join us for an extraordinary evening on Saturday, March 21, as we celebrate the Detroit Zoological Society’s (DZS’S) global wildlife conservation work at the fourth annual Wildlife Conservation Gala.

Enjoy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails and a sit-down dinner in the iconic Wildlife Interpretive Gallery, a brief presentation on the DZS’s expansive conservation work, as well as the presentation of the 2020 Nautilus Award. This award is given to an individual whose efforts have made a profound impact on the future of wildlife and embodies the DZS’s mission of Celebrating and Saving Wildlife. The evening will also feature a raffle with the chance to win “zoonique” prizes.

The DZS’s wildlife conservation initiatives are making an impact around the world. In the last few years alone, the DZS has led and/or supported field conservation programs on six continents. These programs include rescuing and rehabilitating imperiled gorilla populations in the Democratic Republic of Congo, researching penguin populations in the Falkland Islands and Antarctica, rearing and releasing nearly extinct toads in the U.S. and abroad, and many more.

This is a 21-and-older event. Cocktail attire. All proceeds benefit the Detroit Zoological Society’s wildlife conservation programs.

Tickets go on sale Monday, January 6, 2020, at 10 a.m.
